I cant belive some people!! You cant see the flag man!?!? Like I said in my first post I saw the whole thing. He was getting BLACK flaged for at least 8 to 10 laps that I saw maybe more. The flag man is not up there for his heath he is up there for the drivers heath/safety! Lets say he missed the black flag for the first 2-3 laps that still gave him at least 5 laps to see it. This is a big boy and girl sport and if they don't follow rules this is what happens. With a little common sense this could all have been avoided. I myself don't want anyone to get hurt no matter how much a mooron they are. Every time something like this happens it risk's the tracks well being (the town won't keep issuing a license if some one gets killed) accidents happen but the ones that can be avioded hurt everyone the most.

dont forget, there are lights on the track when the red flag comes out. i know it's hard to see threw the smoke at the begining but when you have 30 cars left running it's not that hard.

You have a very good point about the flags,some enduro guys are grabbing a car showing up at the track not having a clue about racing and the flags. It would be interested to find out how many enduro drivers actually are at the drivers meeting? I see most of them in the stands then going to their cars prior to the race. Maybe the track should have a mandatory driver meeting for the enduros only to go over the flags etc... Possibly calling out their names in the meeting and if they are not there they dont go onto the track. I think some guys are showing up just for the thrill of crashing someone showing off in front of their friends or family. If you are in the pits and see someone that is going to be in the enduros with you talk with them ask them if they understand what the flags are etc? We are all one group and should look out for each others safety and provide a great race for the fans. The fans are looking for banging crashing but not looking to see someone get deliberatly hit to either injure or get killed.

when theres over 100 cars what do you expect is going to happen. its not as easy to see the flags as you may think. its a mess out there. your lucky if you can see your hood.

in racing there is always going to be the risk of getting hurt. you can not control it. BUT, you can cut down that risk a lot if you have safety on your mind. i love the howeler. who doesnt want to see "carnage"? but at what expense!?? i have been racing since 1999 and not once have i ever been in a car with out a roll cage. it boggle's my mind why you enduro drivers done protect yourself more. i know some will say that it's enduro's and can not afford a roll cage or fire suit, but how much is your life worth? i wrecked my car this yr 2 race's into the season and even with my roll cage, racing seat, and 5 point harness i broke my foot. had i not had one of those, it would have been a lot worse. i know before i hit the track again next yr, i will have all my safety equipment checked. will you? you can have the biggest balls in the world. but that means $#it when your lying in a hospital or pos worse and having your family watch you... jmo

"This was his first enduro" That is my point. I could care less about dumping cars thats part of the game and you get what you give. My point is paying attention if he did, this would not have happened. They have a manditory drivers meeting and should make all "new" drivers stick around for a flag lesson. You can't even ride go carts without having to listen to the rules first. Bottom line is his own ignorance is what got him in this position. AGAIN I hope he is ok.

what friend brags online going to put pictures on line to show how his buddy almost got killed.. some of you enduro drivers are just clueless
need better rules for enduros
10-31-2010 6:38:35 PM CST
this just proves that some guys going on the track racing dont care .. what the flagman does or say shame someone has to get hurt cause they cant tell what the colors of a flag man mean or just plan ignorant in racing. There is more to racing then putting a helmet on your head

to 4 cyl enduro update,i have been there getting t boned memorial day 07 at hudson on purpose. broken leg hip pelves ribs culapts lung head injurie.i now walk to the left better due to left side wait (metel plates). Hopefully he went to brigams, thats who saved my life. No bars is nuts. I didnt see what that other guy said, but i did watch a volvo with the hood up taking out every one he could. He failed trying to get the winner two or three times. take it from me, its retarded to go out there with no bars,it reely is.Any way, hope your friend comes out of this.

First I hope he is ok! I saw that whole thing happen if he was paying attention to the flag man this would have never happened!! He was getting BLACK flagged for at least 8 laps prior to the hit for a flat tire that was sparking very bad. He was to busy dumping anyone that he could in stead of watching the flag man. The only problem with driving that dirty is that it's only a matter of time before someone dumps you back and thats what happened, he got dumped right in front of a bunch of cars with nowhere to go but right into him. Again if he was paying attention he would be telling good howler stories today instead of getting surgery. Hope he gets better soon!

Also, any word on the four cyl. enduro driver they cut out of the car. That was not good, been there. They reely should make driver protection mandatory. A hoop with a few drivers side bars,something. Even a couple of bars welded outside, rub rails. I got t boned, had my seat brokenthree times, and your left out there like dead meat, praying for a red, not good.

OK, this getting confusing, so here it goes. Hudson speedway is in Hudson. Its closed for the year, cross Hudson Speedway and Hudson Nh out of your brains. Epping: started as Star speedway, went to All Star Speedway now its Star speedway again. Go there for the Howler!
